ROKA Canary Wharf Review – Festive Season Menus

In Foodie Me, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com6 Comments

This is a collaborative post. I’m a big fan of tasting menus in general and come the festive season – a lot of London restaurants offer Christmas and Festive Season menus. On this occasion we booked ROKA in Canary Wharf – which was really something unusual because the city is normally not exactly the area we visit. We had tickets …

Creamy Egg and Avocado Salad Recipe

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com5 Comments

Sometimes I just crave something different for lunch – which are always kind of a rush in between school runs, when I only really have 10-15 minutes to eat. Well, this creamy egg and avocado salad is ready in 15 minutes – so it’s just a little extra time for something more tasty and fulfilling than a cheese sandwich. My …

Review: Eneko One Aldwych – London Restaurant Festival 2018

In Foodie Me, Travel by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

We’ve chosen Eneko at One Aldwych for our recent night out in London for an after theatre meal. I still find it kind of surprising that not every fine dining restaurant offers tables after 10pm – but some shows finish late and we prefer to dine rather after the show then before. Located in Covent Garden in the heart of London’s …

Cheese Board and Knife Set from VonShef Review and Giveaway

In Foodie Me, Giveaways, Home and Garden, Reviews by eva.katona@yahoo.com76 Comments

I *might* have mentioned, that I love dinner parties! I love hosting them too, not just attending one, in fact I probably prefer hosting.  Love having friends over and chatting away whilst having a nice meal, good wine. The company that matters, they say, but I adore the old fashioned side of dinner parties too: getting dressed up, getting the …

Homemade Pumpkin Granola Bar Mummies for Halloween

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com2 Comments

These are so much fun to make with your little people. The granola bars themselves take about 50 minutes to make and there’s no refined sugar added – I’m not saying they are super healthy but not that bad either. It’s also a good way to save the pumpkin carving remnants and turn them into something yummy.  You can go …

Creamy Turnip Dauphinoise Recipe

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.com3 Comments

This is my new favourite side dish! I really wanted to make something different than the good old potato dauphinoise, we all love, but frankly, it’s a bit boring. This turnip dauphinoise was prepared for a Sunday lunch – and because I normally make two main dishes anyway (a vegetarian and some meat) I try to avoid making two side …
